The cop comedy emerged as one of the awards' biggest winners: what's the appeal?
This week's Golden Globe Awards brought the news that aside from scores of deserving winners, there had been left even more equally deserving snubs. New comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine however, was not one of the snubbed titles and instead cleaned up the comedy categories with two Golden Globe awards amidst fierce competition.
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Took Home An Arms-Worth Of Trophies At The Golden Globes.
Golden Globes voters ensured that Fox's freshman sitcom went home with two awards, in the coveted top comedy series category and for lead actor Andy Samberg, who took the best comedy actor prize. "We are very stunned, very grateful and very happy," the show's co-creator Dan Goor said backstage, via Variety.

Good but not great... but has potential
There isn’t much room for error with sitcoms these days. Moments after their air, trigger-happy, sometimes-paid critics have their say, lamenting or eulogising the choices made. Brooklyn Nine-Nine takes a familiar format and blends it up into a comedy, but what are the results?
Andy Samberg is the maverick cop
Before it hit, the press were hailing the cop comedy (copedy?) as one of the most promising shows, not just of Fox’s current slate, but of any network’s. Combining the well-trodden path of procedural cop dramas with the new-age city-dwelling humour of shows like Girls, Brooklyn Nine-Nine seems to have tapped into a rich vein of laughs.
Brick, McQueen and Lincoln Oodie are three trigger-happy redneck brothers who work for a corrupt sheriff of their town, taking down criminals in unlawful ways. After accidentally taking out the residents at an address that turns out to be wrong, they are offered $25,000 by Celeste Martin who asks them to retrieve her kidnapped handicapped godson Rob from her violent ex-husband Carlos who believes she is dead. He killed Rob's parents and had Celeste shot when he discovered he had a large sum of money in a trust that matured when he hit 18. The Oodies think of their mission as a simple smash and grab but things become less easy when Carlos sets a gang of gorgeous but deadly women on them, as well as a group of Federal agents and various other psychopaths hell bent on killing the brothers. While previously seeking fun in lawless battles to the death, the Oodie outlaws soon find themselves questioning themselves and their careers as they do everything in their power to protect the boy from harm, and not just for their own gain.
Comedy action just doesn't get any better than 'The Baytown Outlaws' and is a wonderful feature length movie debut from director Barry Battles and his co-writer Griffin Hood. It will hit theaters in January 2013 after being released On-Demand Nationwide on December 4th 2012.

ABC has called time on two of its newest dramas, Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue, before either of them managed to make it through a full series, with continued poor audience figures cited for the reason to cancel.
This time in November has always been critical time for struggling shows as it marks the time when networks have to make the call as to whether a show is worth spending money on still, or whether it would just be better off leaving it behind. Earlier today, CBS canceled struggling comedy Partners and earlier this month cancelled detective drama Made In Jersey, with the decision that spending more money on these new shows was ultimately not going in their favour.
Whilst the cancelation of CBS' Partners may not surprise many, with critics almost universally lampooning the show, some people may be shocked at the decision to cut The Last Resort short. The show, a thriller about a rogue submarine crew, was among the best-reviewed new shows in the Fall schedule and had built up quite a cult following. However, cult followings and critical response mean nothing if a show isn't pulling in the viewing figures, and Last Resort just wasn't cutting it with the viewers.

Based on a novella by Stephen King, the worst electrical storm on record has a small coastal Maine town assessing the damages to their homes and businesses. Locals have flocked to the town's only grocery store to stock up on supplies while police, fire, and military personnel blanket the surrounding area. As a result of the storm, everything is out -- power, phones, and radios; the town is cut-off from the rest of the world. Oh, and the storm has also left behind an ominous mist that quickly shrouds the town, trapping those inside the grocery store when it appears that bloodthirsty, inhuman monsters are lurking outside.

Story's name was attached to the original Four film in 2005, but that discombobulated blockbuster based on the classic Marvel Comic books felt like meddling producers suggested the film to pieces before the finished product reached theaters. Critics and comic fans responded in kind with opinions that were not so kind, but Four turned a large enough profit to secure a punched ticket to sequel land for Story and his cast.

34 years ago, The Poseidon Adventure rode the trendy disaster meme of its day to stellar box office and numerous Oscar nominations. Today, Poseidon sits poised to ride the current effects meme to similar financial reward and perhaps some technical nods to boot. What it probably won't see is acclaim for its dialogue, story, or characters, but those laurels largely eluded its predecessor as well.
As with its forerunner, Poseidon opens with an introduction to its namesake, a massive luxury liner, and its passengers, which in this installment include an ex-mayor/firefighter (Kurt Russell), his daughter (Emmy Rossum), her beloved (Mike Vogel), a gambler (Josh Lucas), a jilted lover (Richard Dreyfuss), a stowaway (Mía Maestro), an inevitably hot single mom (Jacinda Barrett), her inevitably adorable tyke (Jimmy Bennett), and a waiter (a completely wasted Freddy Rodríguez). If you think reading a list of these stereotypes is tiresome, watching them establish their personas is more so.
